#ManCandyMonday Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

This sexy Dane is rugged and handsome in my book! We first saw Nikolaj in BLACK HAWK DOWN and lately he’s been in GAME OF THRONES and GODS OF EGYPT. Nikolaj was the youngest actor ever trained at the Danish National School of Theatre and Contemporary Dance and is well-established in Denmark and Europe as well as the United States.

#ManCandyMonday Nico Tortorella

Nico first caught my eye in the first season of The Following. Sadly, he played one of the bad guys and I kept on hoping for his redemption because he was so cute! Now Nico is the love interest on Younger. I haven’t watched it, but that doesn’t mean Nico doesn’t keep on catching my eye. LOL!

Thanks to Nico’s Instagram feed for this photo.

#ManCandyMonday Mario Lopez

It’s the dimples. Okay, and the rocking hot bod! Mario has appeared on numerous television shows and commercials. He’s probably best known for his role as A.C. Slater on Saved by the Bell. Mario has also written a fitness book, cookbook and a children’s book about himself and his baby daughter.

He’s just so totally cute and a worthy choice to heat up this very cold and miserable first day of spring.

Guilty Pleasure Scott Adkins

Today’s Guilty Pleasure is Scott Adkins, a British martial arts expert and actor who has appeared in a number of movies and television shows. You may recall him from X-MEN:WOLVERINE as Weapon XI or as Agent Kiley in THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM, but also look for him in NINJA, a March 2010 release in the United States.

Besides being way buff and handsome, he is an amazing martial artist with black belts in Wushu, Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing, Judo and Jujitsu.

Guilty Pleasure Monday – Buster Crabbe

This weekend I deconstructed the Star Trek movie with my buddies at the Liberty States Fiction Writers. A fun time was had by all as we watched the new version and discussed the various series with which some of us had grown up.

Feeling nostalgic, it made me recollect my earliest sci fi series – Flash Gordon as portrayed by Buster Crabbe. Buster would go on and play Tarzan in one movie and then another nameless jungle man in various other movies (which I also loved!). Buster also played Buck Rogers, another of my favorites.

Buster was a talented swimmer who won both a Bronze and Gold medal at the Olympics (in 1928 and 1932 respectively).

He starred in hundreds of movies and television shows throughout his life and when his career started to wane, he became a representative for a New Jersey pool company.

If you want to check out the Flash Gordon series for yourself, the earlier Flash Gordon shows and movies are available in DVD format.

Guilty Pleasure Javier Bardem

He was serial killer scary in NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, but this weekend, as I watched VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA, my heart did a little pitter patter each time Javier Bardem stepped onto the screen.

Those sexy bedroom eyes, deep and mysterious. Dimples and a smile that transforms his face. Handsome in a rugged way, not pretty like Brad Pitt.

I’m not a celebrity watcher, but you don’t have to be to know he married Penelope Cruz recently. She was also in the movie playing his crazed gun-wielding ex-wife. Besides marrying an actress, Javier comes from a long line of people involved in Spanish cinema. I’m glad he made the transition to English-speaking roles so that we had a chance to discover him!

The movie was interesting. I might watch it again for more glimpses of Javier if time allows. The themes in the movie are definitely adult, so this is one for you and your hubby or girlfriends.
